My family is my strength and my weakness.
Sexy in India is not considered positive. But, with today's crop of fresh faces in the modelling arena, being sexy is an asset.
Even in Indian cinema, there is so much work that I have accepted because I'm comfortable and so much I have declined because I haven't been comfortable.
I always believed that my silence on several topics will be an advantage in the long run.
I'm not the type who'll yell about my achievements from the rooftops.
Weight gain can happen at any point in time, and it is something that you are dealing with anyway, and it is OK. It is ridiculous to have this dictate your very being because I have always said that it is not the outside that defines who you are.
Even in India the Hindi film industry might be the best known but there are movies made in other regional languages in India, be it Tamil or Bengali. Those experiences too are different from the ones in Bombay.
I was studying to be an architect, I wasn't plotting to join the movies. Films were just another career option. I took acting up with the same schoolgirl enthusiasm I had for examinations. Acting is a job and I take it very seriously.
I'm just an average woman with average concerns.
Do we recognize the platform that Indian cinema has been given? Of course. And typically India of us, we gracefully acknowledge our host's grace and we thank you for celebrating us and our cinema.
I have always been a person who is extremely comfortable in my skin. I have always just been myself in all these years on the public platform.
I always knew I would be successful. So there was no element of surprise.
I really don't work to a plan, but I just do what interests me and what I like to do.
Life will take its toll on all of us. We get injured, we get old. It's really sad to try to run away from these harsh realities of life. Looks are not everything. I am not going to look beautiful all the time.
I know for a fact that if there's a role which I am suited for, I'll be signed on. I'll never go begging.
